    It takes 15 minutes either way to arrive at the top. You are rewarded with 360 views of Albuquerque and beyond. We went during sunset it was an Amazing site.

    Wonderful facility and exhibits. We went on the weekend so that we could enjoy Pueblo dancing in the courtyard. A young group of dancers did a phenomenal job! We loved learning more in such a beautiful way.

    Don’t miss the restaurant! Great food, generous portions with a Pueblo flair.

    Not far from the hotel I was staying in, you could walk or the hotel had a shuttle bus to take you there. If you rang the hotel they would also pick you up and take you back to the hotel. Lovely place lots of craft and gift shops, also places to eat and drink. Nice way to spend a couple of hours

    History heavy and very thoroughly presented. If you read everything you ca spend quite a long time. At points I overloaded - after a day of long flights - so failure to give 5 stars is probably personal. There is a lighter side - America's atomic obsession in the 50s & 60's - games, toys, et al. Surprised there isn't Dr. Strangelove in here somewhere, but might have missed it. The marketers certainly sold the bomb. Fallout shelters, poingnant memories of Hiroshima, much weaoponry and a collection of warbirds, missles outside for those with heat tolerance (why not) - all signed for context. After the initial creation story, hits most of the highlights, and you'll likely go away knowing more than when you arrived - though you might not go away realizing we are far less armed to the teeth than we once were - problem of course being ever increasing proliferation - the Club is now 9 (or 12, depending on how one counts)

    It was too hot when we arrived at the Visitor Center. Nevertheless I did the Boca Negra Canyon Hike about a mile and contains more than a 100 Petroglyphs. It was an easy hike and scramble to the top.

    Amazing displays and an amazing castle! Don't be fooled by the entrance. Once you are inside, you will love what you see!

    We did the early morning and it was completely worth waking up my 6yr up at 430am and dealing with all his crankiness!! To avoid dealing with walking too far or parking, we found tickers with a shuttle service. It was very easy to navigate directions, and the group was very well organized. To stand in the middle of the field as the sun is rising and walking among the balloons .. absolutely a wonderful memory. We were even able to walk through and touch the balloons as they were inflating. The park where the fiesta was located had plenty of food stalls and other merch. It was incredible.

    NOTE: If you do go early, pack a blanket and warm clothes.

    We LOVED this park! So many ecosystems to see! We saw one of the sleeping porcupines above us in the huge bower of the Mediterranean (Spanish) Garden! The Japanese Garden was exquisite! The Children’s Garden was delightful (even without children). We loved both the Bugarium and the Butterfly House. Great docents in each! The Train Garden was super impressive with another great docent. We highly recommend this garden!

    The most interactive children’s museums we have been to. While relatively small it has activities for all ages. We could have easily been there for the entire day as opposed to the 3 hours we budgeted. The engagement we saw was higher than most places and the place makes great use of the space.

    The membership gives you the aquarium, zoo, and botanical gardens. Definitely worth the price and a cute museum to visit

    Sunday before 1 pm is free admission. Interesting photgraphy exhibit - alternative title: Danny Lyon chronicles marginal and slightly wasted lives with (more) empathy (than perhaps they deserve). Depending on one's viewpoint / but it is an interesting look. Art, from tradttional to modern, local history (an entire gallery on women in local news?) Lots of sculpture outside, nicely rendered, gneerally realism. Fair bit of NM history - as though they wanted to supplement the SF version up the road ('they have an art museum and history museum - we'll build a larger modern structure and combine the mission') I expect your experience will vary with what's showing at the moment; feels like 50% of the space at least rotates for special exhibits.

    Lots to see for the money. Balloon artifacts from the 1700's to present day. Interactive displays, children's area and footage of annual balloon festivals . Really nice museum

    I’m normally not one to write a review. But I felt compelled to write this after the incredible experience my wife and I had at Casa Rondena.

    We walked into the tasting room just before 6:30PM and we’re a bit anxious they close the tasting room at 7PM. We were greated by Robert who made us feel at home while he talked about the wine and the history of the vinyard.

    My favorite tasting is their 1629. An absolutly incredbile red blend.

    We walked out back to take in the pond while we sat and enjoyed our wine and charcuterie. Never feeling rushed as they close the tasting room at 7PM.

    Casa Rondeña….Is a MUST visit when you are in the Albuquerque area.

    Thank you Robert for making us feel at HOME.
